Strike at Makerere University


Makerere University students protest 100 per cent tuition policy in March 2015

Makerere university students are on strike once more.

They are protesting the “unfair” 100percent fees policy.

Police deployed at main entrance of the university and main building.

They accuse guild president of abandoning their interests and now want the administration to rescind its decision.

Students protested the university policy of 100% payment of tuition within the first six weeks of the semester in March 2015.

The policy bars students from doing their course works which start next week or sitting for exams unless they have cleared all their tuition fees.

Makerere University Vice Chancellor John Ddumba Ssentamu and administrators later met student leaders and scrapped the policy.

According to the students, the same policy has been restored and they have been given one month to clear fees.

Dressed in red gowns and shouting “weewee”, the students are now marching across the university expressing their dissatisfaction.

The guild president, David Bala Bwiruka, has urged calm as negotiations with management get underway.
